Comparison of OCT quantitative findings in plaque properties among 3 groups. a Lipid index (LI). b Fibrous cap thickness (FCT). c Calcification index (CI) LI was stepwisely increased according to the tertile of MAGE (1958 ± 974 [tertile 1] vs. 2653 ± 1400 [tertile 2] vs. 4362 ± 1858 [tertile 3], p <0.001, respectively) (a), whereas FCT was the thinnest in the tertile 3 (157.3 ± 73.0 μm vs. 104.0 ± 64.1 μm vs. 83.1 ± 34.7 μm, p <0.001, respectively) (b). CI did not differ among the three group (417 ± 968 vs. 242 ± 370 vs. 493 ± 842, p = 0.288, respectively) (c)
